Insects will start swarming as soon as Spring stops behaving like Winter. Unless it's a butterfly or bee, I usually shriek and swat when a bug swoops too close to my face. Surprisingly, I squeal in excitement instead of alarm when I find beautiful beetle jewelry.
I'd even be thrilled to have beetle bling hanging from my ears. More and more, I've been seeing real elytra beetle wings flutter up in my Etsy searches for handmade accessories. Isn't it amazing how nature can make something that stunningly shiny?! The man-made exotic beetle earrings I found are pretty spectacular, too.
